The weekend in pictures...

we had a great weekend... we just relaxed and ate and chatted. when I saw Ali's weekend creative challenge, I tough it was a wonderful way to capture the whole weekend in pictures on one page.

Today I want to give away a RAK of all the Making Memories beautiful wedding papers. It's so beautiful all in black and white... not only useful for wedding pages, but also for cards and any page where you want some elegance and simplicity. Please leave me a comment and tell me what you did this weekend.



A thought for today: Phil 1: 9-11So this is my prayer: that your love will flourish and that you will not only love much but well. Learn to love appropriately. You need to use your head and test your feelings so that your love is sincere and intelligent, not sentimental gush. Live a lover's life, circumspect and exemplary, a life Jesus will be proud of: bountiful in fruits from the soul, making Jesus Christ attractive to all, getting everyone involved in the glory and praise of God.

Hello Wilna, I found your blog via Ali's so I thought I would pop in and say hello. Looks like you had a great time away. My weekend started with baking on Saturday morning followed by making an Accordion Album in the afternoon. Sunday was beautiful, blue sky,warm and no wind so we took the boat out for a run to the islands.
Cheers, Irene :)

Let's see....this weekend I got a head start on weeding my gardens and got a little sunburnt and went to an evening parade my son was marching in.

Jennifer said...

This past weekend I had several nights alone (my DH was working nights), so I got a chance to do some serious scrapping! I worked on my daughter's baby album.

did you use what they call matrix 25 to make your picture collage...it's an action you use in photoshop. I have it but I have yet to use it. after seeing this I think I will give it a try.

I love all the pictures from your weekend...looks like lots of fun. I spent LOTS of time in my very waterlogged, muddy yard. It was a good time to pull weeds with the ground so soft. Got lots of flowers in pots and in the ground...I love spring!

I love that Bible passage! Which version do you use? I did absolutely nothing this weekend. It was glorious! Doesn't happen very often but so glad when it does!!

milkcan said...

I worked all weekend! And spent last night in the emergency room with a torn cornea. Not very fun!

Melissa said...

Looks like you had an amazing time!! WHAT A BOAT!! Love the way you documented with the layout. :)

I spent the weekend packing, and going to a wedding. It was pretty quiet, which is nice!

Wilna, I am happy for you that you are having this special family time.
We started by 2 days of purging, working toward more simplicity and preparing the condo for our upcoming move. Today, we went to see our grand-daughters, they wanted to spend the day watching movies in our brand new van! It was the best! We also visited with extended family members, then stopped at some friends' house for a surprise visit. After lunch in a tiny town, we went back home for a nap and some gardening. Tonight, my husband is watching the last show of "24" and I am scrapbooking. What a great weekend we had!

We went to a bunch of yard sales and I found lots of fun non traditional scrapbooking items. We had chocolate chip pancakes for lunch yesterday with whipped cream and strawberries! And did a ton of laundry. And I woke up to snow this morning!!! Crazy weather! Glad I didn't plant anything!

HAPPY LONG WEEKEND WILNA!

We had a very busy but great long weekend. Most of our weekend was spent on photography related activities...we were learning CS4 and I started the Maggie Holmes Photography class today - great way to spend the long weekend with my sweetie...

Shayne said...

My family participated in an adventure race on Sat, then my eldest broke her arm, and on Sunday we had a 3 year old with a tummy bug! But we managed to spend the afternoon with some very special friends and had a wonderful day!

Bernadine said...

I went to a good friends kitchen tea on Saturday and had family over for lunch on Sunday and in between I scrapped. :)

I spent a beautiful weekend at my folks house and it was wonderful, just to spend time with them and chill. Attended my BFF's son's baptism, which was wonderful!

Tessa said...

This sunday was Norway's national day, so this day started early getting our nice clothes on, walking in the parade, eating what icecream we wanted and just enjoying all of the day ;-)

chantel said...

Hi there, we relaxed indoors but with the warm South African sun shining through to ease the chill, and watched, yes you guessed it, rugby, the Sharks play the Bulls. But fun family time had by all.
Hugs

Had an awesome weekend celebrating my dad's 61st b-day. Also had a long talk with hubby about God and I am so sad that he does not believe.

Jennifer R. said...

Busy weekend! My pup is in agility and beginner obedience (only 6 mos. old and already a cutie!). It rained most of the weekend so it was a great time to catch up on projects around the house! Hope you had a great weekend!

Jingle said...

Fun pics! I celebrated my little sister's college graduation with my family! It was wonderful! I posted her picture on my blog!

Tertia said...

I had a sleepover. My grandchildren spent the night on Friday. What a gift it is to see them every day of my life and have sleepovers whenever they feel like it. Went shopping for a new car - haven't found it yet, still looking. Best part of the weekend? Having all my children here to watch the Sharks and Blue Bulls play. What a game!!!!!! I nearly had a heart attack, but the Bulls won, so all is good:)Did some crafting, including crochet a blanket for my 4yo granddaughter's baby. She says that the baby is 'FREEZING, ouma, and she really NEEEEDS a blankie', so what was I supposed to do? I couldn't let the poor thing die now, could I?

Hi Wilna! This weekend I took my son to three state qualifier BMX races. He took a 2nd and two 3rds. It was beautiful weather and safe, fun racing. My husband also had a mountain bike race and came in second. Way to go boys! Love your thought for the day. A great reminder! Hugs to you. -Alisa

Hi Wilna
This weekend my husband and I walked the Tukkies campus on their Open Day and although I've been there to watch my daughter perform in the Jacaranda Childrens Choir many times-this was different- because my son goes off to university next year!Its amazing to think as a mom that I've come sooooo far!I know that all the angels in heaven have cheered me on from the beginning... May your day be blessed.Hayley

Hi Wilna, this is a great mosaic of FUN!

On Saturday I did some errands and bought some things needed for the "Doing Life Scrap Day at Makaranga" on 13 June. Then I went to the Pavilion and did some of my own shopping. Had a scrapping afternoon as the rest of the family went to watch the rugby game at the stadium in Durban. On Sunday Dereck and I drove to Cathedral Peak (in the Berg) to visit my friend Desire and we spent the rest of the day there. Came home to a wonderful meal of cottage pie cooked by my son and his girlfriend. Busy preparing for my 25 wedding anniversary party on 15 June, so wedding type papers would come in very handy if I was lucky enough to win them. Thanks for the opportunity!!

Hi Wilna
Ons het 'n heerlike, rustige naweek gehad. Ek is net jaloers op almal hierbo wat skryf dat hulle gescrap het, want ek het omtrent net 'n uur gescrap, en dis te min! Ek en Fritz het Saterdagmiddag 'n kursus bygewoon in huweliksberading - stunning! Ons leer so bietjie van IMAGO terapie. Het net weer besef watter invloed het ons as ouers op ons kinders, want so baie van wat ons hulle gee/nie gee nie, bepaal hul keuse van 'n lewensmaat eendag in die toekoms.
Mal oor julle foto's. Kan sien julle kuier 'n hond-uit-'n-bos uit!
Liefde
Ingrid

Aloha Wilna, This weekend we went to a baby luau which is a big island tradition to celebrate a baby's first birthday. There was also the annual Hawaii Book & Music Festival, if only it had scrapbooking and photography it would be all my loves combined. And of course, time in the garden, hang time w/ the kids and cats. I watched the Preakness horserace, so fascinating. And for my husband, Stanley Cup playoffs!

Sara said...

I worked at my 2nd job all weekend...in between I got to Costco for food for the freezer and to Home Depot for flowers for the flower boxes.

Hi Wilna,
I took my son shopping at Gateway to buy birthday presents for his best friends (twins) then cooked dinner for my family & blogged for the evening! Then on Saturday I visited a good friend in Pietermaritzberg for the mornining & had a quick scrappy shop there at the Mad Scrapper! Then I came home & took my son to his best friends' birthday party & cooked dinner again! I got a nice early night & on Sunday did some chores around the house then went house-hunting in the afternoon with my 2 daughters, checking out all the Houses On Show!

I took my son to football, and then bought both him and his brother a very yummy (and healthy) lunch at the Noodle Canteen. Then I did some shopping for my girls s/b weekend. Sunday I did all the laundry, packed some page kits, made some cakes and then fetched my hubby from the airport!
